Arthur F (Phocian) Rice

Photographer: A. F. Rice
North Manchester, Indiana

Arthur F (Phocian) Rice
(6 Aug 1867 - 28 Aug 1952)

Arthur Phocian Rice spent his entire life in North Manchester, IN. He was photographer there from as early as 1885 to 1918 on Walnut Street, and from 1920 to 1930 on East 2nd Street. In later years his health was not good and his son Lozier worked as photographer. In 1930 both were “retail merchants selling photos and radios.”

Considering also the pale color and the scalloped edges, the cabinet card at the left was probably finished between 1890 and 1900.
